Dig Like the Roots Aren't There!

Roots always seem to get in the way of digging, whether you expect them or not. Once you switch to the Root Slayer you might not even notice them most of the time.

The Root Slayer is a multi-purpose shovel that can eliminate the need for other tools, such as hatchets and saws, when simply digging around the home. If you've ever hit roots while trying to plant a perennial, been stymied by roots when trying to dig up a shrub, or tried to divide hostas with a spade only to have them slide away from your shovel, you know what we're talking about.

Don't be surprised if the Root Slayer becomes your go-to shovel. Think of it as a shovel, a spade, a root hatchet, and a root saw all in one tool.

Exceeds expectations


I have several roses and crepe myrtles that need to be removed. These are mature bushes with huge root systems. I bought this spade to help me cut through the roots. It does it easily without the need to use shears. Well made and ergonomic. It is a pleasure to use a well designed tool.

Love this shovel!


This shovel works excellently for what I wanted it for. 1. Cuts old unwanted roots from removed trees the best. 2. Cutting "baby" Sega palms from the daddies with so much less effort or any palm for that matter. Cuts clean, gets me some root and is perfect for propagating these palms. So glad I purchased it.

Multi purpose


Love this shovel. Very sturdy and the round handle was simple to learn. I have used it a lot for digging out tree seedlings and many, many rose of Sharon plants. I found another use this winter when I had to bury a cat and this helped cut through the frozen top inches of soil, without me worrying about the handle shattering.

Indispensible garden tool!


My everyday gardening/landscaping tool. It's everything I'd hoped for: tough, sturdy, easy to use, effective. Great for digging out old or unwanted vegetation. Perfect for trimming up garden beds by cutting underground grass roots to prevent bed invasion. Perfect for digging out deep weed roots. Wide foot pad for digging in. Love the handle grip — no more torquing on wrists. I'm a 5'6", 68 years young grandmother and an avid gardener. I use this digger everyday!

This shovel has quickly become one of my favorite gardening tools! Love the wider steps on either side of shovel, works great cutting through roots, and I also love the handle! It’s a well-built sturdy shovel and I would definitely recommend it!!

Root slayer


At 75 years old, I'm not able to dig like I used to but this does the trick. Great price, quick ship, and very heavy duty. Happy with purchase.
